Holiday Keepsake with Karen

by Karen Jiles | 5 years ago

Hi there,

Karen here, sharing a Holiday Keepsake created with the New Mercury Glass paper stack and the Favor Boxes DIY Project Stack. This paper is perfect for the Holidays. The shimmer in the patterned paper provides just the amount of glitz, appeal, and visual texture that is needed to enhance the overall design of this project. Take a peek at my easy Keepsake tutorial below:


DCWV Stack: Mercury Glass

DCWV DIY Project Stack: Favor Boxes

Wooden Frames (5 X 5, 7 3/4 x 7 3/4)

Felt Ribbon

3D Tape

Xyron Adhesive: The New Creative Station, Mega Runner

Hot Glue

Step 1: Adhere patterned paper from Mercury Glass Stack to 7 ¾ x 7 ¾ wooden frame. Set aside.

Step 2: Fold a 5 x 10 piece of patterned paper in half and score with bone folder.

Step 3: Using the Mega Runner, apply adhesive to the back of the folded cardstock and adhere to the 5 x 5 frame. Note: This will create a card effect with an opportunity to add photos and/or journaling to the inside of the folded layer.

Step 4: Run additional patterned paper layers, including coordinating strips, through Xyrons New Creative Station.

Step 5: Adhere coordinating paper layers and ribbon to 5 x 5 wooden frame.
